Look, if Pixar can make a franchise out of talking cars, I think you can do this.

I can't wait till I get a chance to play this! Every time I see a new animation, or a new video I get a little more excited. I pre-ordered this the second I could, it can't come soon enough!

Oh hey, I'm in the beta for two days. What character do I pick if I'm terrible at aiming?

Best way to check is open the client, that can show before you get an email.

Well, it's more "I'm at work, now I'm curious" sort of thing.

Well, it comes later than the account activation itself but they have sent emails out, at least to me. Check there if you can.

The dwarf guy, Tjorden or whatever, is mostly about putting down turrets.

Mercy is mostly about the healing beam.

Yeah, if you've played TF2 a number of the characters are pretty direct analogs to several TF2 characters.

While I'm terrible at using her, D.Va is exactly as fun as I hoped she'd be.

Here's hoping this game gets a holiday sale or something, because I sure as heck can't afford it now

This game seems like a blast, but I went into the practice arena to try out some characters and abilities. I was lagging incredibly bad with just myself in the game let alone other people. I really hope they fix this.

They're letting more people play the beta so they can fix this. It's a stress test.

I figured it was a stress test, but I actually wanted to test things so I can be helpful. It's hard for me to do that. I really wanna test reaper and Reinhardt or anyone with movement abilities. Those seem like they would break first.

Lucio is also great. He heals via proximity and using the speed boost mode can help the team get to the point faster. Just remember to switch. His alt fire is a close range push back that can give you some breathing room, and push someone to their death, assuming they're near an edge/drop. His Ult is great but not something you want to spam. Every team member nearby get a temporary shield that wears off. Good for when the opposing team decides to burn their ults in quick succession.

Enjoying what I'm playing so far! Might help that it's still new and most people aren't experienced so I can feel more awesome, and there are enough different abilities to keep it interesting. Characters sound like they're trying too hard to be amusing, but I'll probably tune it out at worst.

So this game is pretty fun I got up to level 12 got an epic Pharrah skin. McCree took me a bit of getting used to on how his ult works, but it can be devastating. What's also devastating is how a little bit of teamwork helps. Also does anyone know if competitive play makes it so you can only have one of a hero type per team? I mean I love Hanzo as much as the next guy, and seeing 6 dragons was hilarious, but come on.

No, competitive allows for multiples.

Y'know, if there's one thing that is really bugging me about this game...

I've been sniped by more non-snipers than Hanzo or Widowmaker.
Zenyatta - orb orb orb
Mei - ICE SPIKE
Genji - shuriken shuriken shuriken
McCree - Deadeye from across the friggin' map...

I actually went pretty nuts on the ice map on attacking side as widowmaker. It was pretty easy to lock down I think it was the second part? It's hard to remember the names of the maps, and what was available, but I had a blast with Widow on that one.
